I'm Back!

Well I've just spent a few very welcome days on holiday in the Isle of Wight - it was Ed's parents annual trip and we tagged along for the first half of the week. Even though the weather forecast was shocking, we didn't do as badly as we thought - the mornings were a bit damp but Sunday afternoon in particular we saw blazing sunshine and enjoyed a lovely pub lunch in the Crab and Lobster in Bembridge - bliss! While I was away I read a couple of really good books - One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson and The House at Riverton by Kate Morton - both well worth a look if you are into your reading but get sick of Chick Lit (which I certainly do!).

Anyway, back to the here and now and I've spent most of today travelling - the journey was great until we were nearly home, only to find that the main route into Coventry was flooded and had been shut and we had to drive through mini floods in country lanes to get back on track. Thank God for sat nav!

Back indoors, I've been greeted by the fluff balls (who had decided to drag the tea towels down from their hooks in the kitchen and use them as beds while we were away, nice), had a nice cup of tea and now I need to update my blog. I've got a few things ready for sharing, but I'm going to share the remaining pages of my mini book today after I promised LightHouseGirl last Friday. So here it is...


  1. Thank you so much :-D It is fantastic and the advice so sensible, calm and easy to apply.

    I aim to scraplift shamelessly!

    I am glad you had a good time on the Isle of White - my parents are down that way but I have been up in a very Birmingham this week.

    Thank you for sharing

  2. What a lovely little book, and what great sentiments and advice.

    I think I'll be shameless scraplift some of that myself! LOL.

    I've been meaning to ask you too - is that your handwriting? Because is really cool!


  3. Gorgeous mini book, I have that pp and totally love it!
    Glad you had a nice time away, and the weather was not too bad.

  4. I love this book, it is stunning and such an awesome idea too!

    You have gorgeous handwriting too, do you mark your kids work like this?

    Also...are you anything like my scrapbooking teacher friend, who loves giving the kids stickers with their mark at the end of their work! lol!
